Jun Hyung Kim is a student in the Economics Ph.D. program at the University of Chicago. He has a B.A. in Economics from UC Berkeley. His current research interests include determinants of parental investment, parent-child interactions, personality traits and their effects on human capital development and life cycle outcomes of parents and children. His analysis and evaluation of a parenting intervention implemented in Germany has appeared in Labour Economics (October 2018).

In addition, he is evaluating an implementation of a Doula intervention, and is building a forecasting model of life cycle outcomes using childhood skill measures. He is currently focusing on the economics of parent-child interaction in human capital development framework.

In the future this study will be extended to investigate the trade-off parents face among labor supply and different dimensions of parental investment. In his free time he likes to walk along lake shore and read. Currently he is (slowly) reading the history of the Third Reich by Richard J. Evans.
